Teresa De Jesús
Teresa is 45 years old. She went to school up to the second grade. She is married and her husband is a farmer. She takes care of her home. She has three children, and two of them live with her. She also lives with a daughter and law and her two children. For her whole life, Teresa has taken care of the home, whether her own or other people's in the community, washing and ironing for others. She does the washing in the river that is 20 meters away and she gets there on foot.

She needs the loan to buy fertilizers and pesticides, because her husband will plant 7,000 square meters of corn. Her dream is for her husband's crop to turn out well so she can pay off the loan.
